I'm not sure it is possible to answer that question. Rule of thumb is 1" per 5g of water.

How big do the clowns in your picture get? Could I house a pair of those in a tank?

The clown in my pic is Amphiprion percula, they get about 3-4", technically speaking a pair would be about the top end of your capacity. IMO, stocking really can be an art, you could probably do a pair of clowns and one other small fish, like a gobie.
